AT&T recently revealed that they are planning to shut down their 2G wireless network by 2017. The majority of carriers including AT&T have been pushing their customers to make the switch to a 3G or 4G phone. AT&T stated that they did not expect any problems having customers transition to 3G or 4G, but with the switch comes the requirement of using a smartphone.
For some this may not be a problem, they will finally be able to experience the glory that comes with owning a smartphone. But for others, using a smartphone presents a problem. I know my grandmom still uses an old flip phone and could care less to about buying a smartphone. She said to learn how to use a smartphone, she needs to attend a special university. Is there no work around for this group of people? Only time will tell.

Whether it was by accident or on purpose, the new HTC Droid Incredible 4G made its debut on Verizon’s Droid Does website.
The Ice Cream Sandwich phone will be powered by a 1.2 GHZ processor with 1GB of RAM. A 8-megapixel camera is on the back with a VGA camera on the front. The Incredible 4G will have a 4 inch qHD display, which lets just say is a step up from HD. Beats Audio will be onboard and the Incredible 4G has the ability to support up to 10 devices for mobile hotspot. Up to 32GB can be added via a microSD card.
With the specs already released as well as an official online presence it is only a matter of time until Verizon announces the release date for this beauty.
Just when you thought the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus could go no lower, Google has defined all odds. Google has posted the unlocked Galaxy Nexus for $399 in the new section “Devices” in the Google Play Store. The 16GB contract free Galaxy Nexus only works on GSM networks (T-Mobile, AT&T).
Google is also throwing in a $10 credit for Google Wallet, the company’s mobile payment service. This deal is literally out of this world and we can imagine that many fans will be running to the Google Play Store to buy their unlocked Ice Cream Sandwich Galaxy Nexus.
